    Create an affiliate account on your respective network to see how your competition compares to you within the program.

    Radian 6 is also a great tool for gauging how your competitor's social media influence stacks up to your own. This is pretty expensive though. Argyle Social is a cheaper option.

    If you want to compare your competitors' site traffic to yours, a good site would be compete.com. I actually think i found it from someone on the forum. Its a helpful tool

    SEMRush is a nice tool to spy on your competitors and they are also giving a 1 month free trial now during December.

    Build a spreadsheet listing all of those types of sites, then compare against each other.

    Great thread topic, HMAseb.

    It's been nearly two years since I've written an article on this subject, but this one is still valid (and answers your question): Competitive Intelligence at the Service of Affiliate Program Managers.

    Enjoy!
